Producer: Mixing New DREAM THEATER Live DVD Is A 'Ball-Breaker'

Veteran producer Kevin Shirley (IRON MAIDEN, DREAM THEATER) has posted the following update on his web site:

"Spent the week mixing the stereo mixes of the 3-hour long DREAM THEATER show from the Budokan in Tokyo for their forthcoming DVD, and it's a real ball-breaker to do. It's so complicated and technical, and a real challenge. Mike Portnoy swapping from one drum kit to another all over the place, Jordan and Petrucci firing machine-gun riffs around in harmony with John Myung holding down the foundation = so you have to be concentrating non-stop. * Took the weekend off (I had planned to work through 'til we were finished, but my assistant is fried!), and am just waking in the quiet, foggy early morning of the Hamptons. Next week, I plan to finish up the DREAM THEATER stereo and surround mixes, as well as mix a track for the sensational 'new' English group, THE DARKNESS, which I'm really looking forward to!"
